I shoot 10mm, .357, etc with no problem. Still, alloy J frame snub revolvers with even standard .38 Special ammo are not pleasant. Not fun so I don%u2019t practice with or carry my 2 small lightweight 5 shot revolvers like I should. The Hornady 90g %u201CLite%u201D JHP was my attempt to overcome this. I was somewhat successful. Recoil is somewhat less than 148g Wadcutter, but still more than 9mm. Recoil is very subjective, but semi-autos or big steel revolvers mitigate recoil. Light 15 ounce or less snubbies directly transmit recoil to the hand. I still prefer any semi-auto short of 10mm to an alloy snub, but this %u201Clite round is the best you can do to lessen that recoil and still have a passable defensive round. Buds purchase and delivery is excellent.

These rounds work great in my 38 spl S&W model 36 2 inch revolver. The recoil is controllable, even for my wife, They offer a decent compromise between recoil and stopping power.

Great ammo for a 38 Special snub nose. Does a great job with little recoil. Highly recommend.

Notice the difference for sure. Better recoil option for the light, S&W J-frame for my wife.

    Yes you can shoot .38 Special in any .357 Magnum revolver. The .357 and .38 are the same size except the .357 is slightly longer to hold more powder and make higher pressures. This is how the .357 was developed by making the ,38 case longer. They are often loaded with the same bullets. NOTE>>> You can't shoot .357 mags in a gun labeled .38 Special … they won't fit. AND DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SHOOT .38 SUPER IN YOUR REVOLVER. .38 Super is a rimless case made for semi-auto pistols not for your revolver.
